Rihanna, the flamboyant Barbados born artist is well known for her unique sense of fashion- and her music (you don’t get 5 billboard hot 100s with a sense of fashion only)! But what we love most about her is her sense of style! The fashion bomb has successfully introduced a number of new trends in fashion through the years- and her shoes are her best style statement! Can you do a Rihanna with your women’s shoes? Sure you can- and we’ll tell you exactly how!
· Know what you are about- this lady sure does! look how she flaunts her Bajan roots- in everything she wears! She’s pretty serious about her shoes too. We spotted her with those gorgeous high heeled shoes on the red carpet, at award functions and even at interviews. We also observed how she donned just the right pair of casual flat sandals or high fashion stilettos when her wardrobe demanded it! We must admit, she looked a stunner in them every single time!
Take a leaf out of her book-don’t just go for women’s shoes because you think they are fashionable. Is it ‘you’? Will you be comfortable in them? Are they right for the occasion (unless you’re planning a lady gaga!)?Consider these before you hit those ‘women’s shoes on sale’ counters!
· It’s Not About the Price-Rihanna has been in the limelight for her Giuseppe zanotti pumps, the womens platform sandals she sports and those absolutely divine patent open toe booties she wears. But we really loved her on those gladiator style boots by Balenciaga! She does seem to have a way with her shoes-this lady! Did you catch her in those gorgeous riding boots or those Yves St.Laurent wrap up sandals? It echoes her daring fashion sense- and lends her oodles of sex appeal!
Learn from the experts- your shoes are not really about the amount of money you spend on them (though we have to admit, your chances of securing her Balmain fringed sandals at $50 are remote!)! The point is to invest wisely. Compare the brands AND the looks of the shoes before you buy them. Do they go with your personality? Do they go with your dress? If you are anything like the fiery Rihanna, you should be able to carry off BOTH a fun look and an elegant one! Buy different shoes for different occasions- that’s the best way to be appropriately dressed at all times!
· Make it about you- Most fashion experts agree that Rihanna is fierce in her choices of shoes! Whether it’s her high heels that scream “look at me” or the classy Louboutin boots-they are ALWAYS the most talked about part of her ensemble! We can’t say we blame her- after all, what are couture dresses and expensive jewellery if you cannot team them with the right shoes?
